Software :: Cannot Authenticate Root Password / Make It Possible?

Jul 9, 2011

Lots of password threads, but I didn't see this.
Installing Debian amd64 on a Dell Optiplex 740.
The default install (simple graphical) works OK. But when I install "graphical expert", the same root password seems to be OK during the install, but doesn't work when the system comes up.

A. I have used a very short pw. It worked before.
B. The root pw is the same as the user pw. It worked before.

I am installing from CD and from DVD, both downloaded and burned as iso. In both cases, I asked for "graphical desktop" and "standard utilities", no servers, no laptop, no SQL.

General :: Mail Server : Reset The Password For It Using The Password Command From The Root Login?

Jul 23, 2009

I am an absolute Linux Beginner who is being required to do a bit of admin work because the boss just fired the old linux admin. Unfortunately, one of our employees cannot remember her password to her email account and as such I need to reset it on our linux server.What I want to check is that this email account is actually a linux user account and I simply will reset the password for it using the passwd command from the root login. Is that correct?

General :: CentOS / Sudo Doesn't Accept Root Password But Logging In As Root Works

Apr 9, 2010

I was trying to edit a file requiring root permissions, so I used sudo. I typed the root password and it failed. This happened three times, and the process was ended. I then logged in as root (su) and was able to navigate to the file and make changes as root. Am I missing something? How would I edit the sudoers file such that this password would work? Or is there another way to log in to the sudo group to make these changes? How do I set sudo passwords?

Ubuntu :: Change Password New And Old Do Not Authenticate?

Jan 10, 2010

I tried to change my password through the Users and Groups dialogue, and now neither the old one nor the new one work. I tried to do it once, and it didn't do anything (the password was still my old password), then the second time I did it, when I went to save the configuration it wouldn't take my new password or my old one. Now I can't authenticate for anything.

A wicked backdoor I've noticed is that going into recovery mode offers you a root console without authentication. (Awesome, Linux, secure as all ****, seriously.) Is there any way to use this to set my user password without needing to authenticate?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Authenticate 10.10 Partition With Password

Mar 1, 2011

Today I've found out that I cannot authenticate and use my ubuntu 10.10 partition as it doesn't recognize my password! The password is correct, I also tried to change the username in "root" but nothing changes. When I write it, it shows for some istants a black screen with words in it (so quickly that it's not easy to read) and then it shows me again the form to access.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Authenticate Password On Login Screen

Jan 17, 2011

I may be a beginner to Ubuntu 10.10, but I'm fairly certain that this is weird: I have had no trouble logging into my Ubuntu 10.10 netbook until this morning. Now I am unable to get past the login screen. It says that there is an Authentication Failure, which is bogus. Not only should the password work, but it does in the Terminal. I am able to login to the terminal and gain root access.

I can even change my unix password, but no matter what I try I can't get to my desktop. I did run into a major issue with a frozen program. Rather than reboot, I tried to close it using the kill command. What ended up happening was that all that remained was my wallpaper, probably a bad move on my part, but I'm a rookie. I think I killed all running applications. This happened last night... so probably related.

Server :: Authenticate Users To Apache By Host/ISP And Password?

Aug 13, 2010

I am wondering how websites like banks are able to determine if you have previously used a certain computer to access the website, even if your router's IP address may have changed and your system's cookies have been cleared. I have users that need to access our HTTP intranet from outside locations. Those locations will have dynamic IP addresses most of the time, so I can't just "allow from [ip]" in my Apache proxy configuration. Originally we considered a VPN, but determined that a VPN will be overkill to access just an internal website, since we do not want external users to have permission to the rest of the network, only the website.I currently have it working over HTTPS with basic authentication against an internal LDAP server, but I want a little more security for such an important website.

crappy diagram:
[user]-->(internet via https)-->[apache gateway]-->(intranet)-->[http server]

Fedora :: Requires Root Password When Accessing Second Windows Hard Disk?

Aug 28, 2010

I have a second hard disk which has windows and C and D drives partitions. When I boot fedora 13, fedora automatically mounts them as 53 Gb Filessytem and 200 GB Filessytem. But when i try to browse to these filesystem, fedora ask me root password. How I can configure fedora so that it does not ask me root password and this change should be permanent ( surving computer shutdown and restart) ? I want these windows partitions to be reachable by me as the non-root user.Also given /dev/sdb (the windows disk) what is the command line to find out the filesytem path to which various paritions on /dev/sdb are mapped to?

Fedora Security :: Set Up 2 Root Accounts And Need Both To Be Able To Authenticate?

Nov 20, 2009

fedora 10 and im trying to set up some user accounts on a computer. My current problem is that we set up 2 root accounts and we need both to be able to authenticate. So far this works on the command line but whenever i'm on the GUI it seems that it only allows root to give its password for things. How do i enable the second account to do that as a note, i am doing this for someone else so i have little to no control how this is set up, so please, i am not looking for reasons why this is not a good idea i would just like to figure this out

Ubuntu Security :: Guest Account Able To Authenticate As Root

Jun 25, 2011

I am trying to use a guest account in Ubuntu 10.10 however I am unable to stop the guest account from authenticating as a superuser and gaining root permissions dispite removing all permissions from the user-group control panel. The new guest account I created is not part of the admin group. However, with my new guest account I am unable to start a guest session from the panel, AND if I use the guest session from the panel I dont have the problem with the guest session being able to authenticate. How do I prevent super user authentication from an account in this situation? It seems that any account can authenticate and my /etc/sudoers file looks like this:

# /etc/sudoers
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.

Defaults env_reset
# Host alias specification
# User alias specification
# Cmnd alias specification
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Allow members of group sudo to execute any command
# (Note that later entries override this, so you might need to move
# it further down)
%sudo ALL=(ALL) ALL
#includedir /etc/sudoers.d
# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL

OpenSUSE Install :: Root Password During After Install?

Apr 5, 2011

have managed to lock myself out of my root account...I just installed openSUSE 11.4, and during the install, I set the root password to be different then my regular user password. Both passwords I've used for a while and know backwards and forwards so it's not a case of simply forgetting a new password.The thing is, I managed to mis-type the root password wrong 2x in a row. I have tried all my passwords numerous times, with and without caps lock, I've tried su -, sudo and logging in directly as root. All to no avail. It always returns authentication failure.I know this is a worst case senario and am expecting that the easiest way to fix is just to reinstall (Not a big issue since I just installed) but I figured I would ask if anyone had a good way to fix this
